Is this what they really want?
In November 2002, the Australian Institute of Criminology released its annual Facts and Figures publication, a quick reference booklet that details the major crime statistics for the preceding year. The statistics on violent crime include homicide, assault, sexual assault and robbery. Rates of violent crime in 2001 were higher than in previous years. The rate of assault has increased steadily from 563 victims per 100,000 people in 1995 to 779 per 100,000 people in 2001. In 2001 the rate of robberies reached 136 per 100,000 people which is the highest recorded since 1995. The rate of sexual assault was 86 per 100,000 people, which is higher than any previous year.

I'm no expert on statistics, but doesn't 563 up to 779 = something like 28%.
And this is coming from the horses mouth.
Just thought yall might like to see this.

Must be bad-guy paradise - hardly any risk of meeting serious self defence levels.
I'd say UK pretty much same - tho of course neither ever had CCW but for sure a gun in the home is mighty useful - if ''allowed'' to own one!!

You know, the gunless society is scary enough, but it's also scary that people cannot see that crime increased where guns were banned from the general citizenship. How hard can this be?
Since England and Austraila have banned guns, their crime rates have increased dramatically and the authorities responsible don't, won't, or can't seem to get the picture.
